a peek "Inside the Studio" with UPRISE

Inside the Studio: VISIT WITH JEN WINK HAYS    We stopped by the Philadelphia, PA studio of Jen Wink Hays to explore her latest works on canvas. A departure from her works on paper, Jen’s latest paintings explore the complexity of networks in imagined vast oceans of abstract free-floating forms and interlinked landmasses. Through the materiality of oil, these spaces become even more specific, and take on a character and quality of their own. GO TO ARTICLE

"...Hays’ transition from working in gouache on paper to painting with oil on canvas further illuminates her approach to context, negative space, the surrounding substance that envelop the colorful forms within." 

A little late on the uptake...

OK, I'm more than a little late seeing this lovely mention on Bustle (from November) - but grateful nonetheless for the kind words.  I don't know which pleases me more - that I "should definitely be on your radar" or the fact that I fall into the category of "young" female. :) Either way, here's the link


Art studios are just much much larger in Philadelphia

Free Arts Art Auction, New York City 11/18/15

This fall, the lovely folks at Uprise Art co-sponsored a charitable event in support of Free Arts NYC's 3rd Annual Art Auction in which they featured a variety of works by their artists. My 2013 work on paper, "Fill In The Blanks" joined the occasion and went home with a new owner that evening. All proceeds benefitted Free Arts NYC.

Market Art + Design, Bridgehampton 07/09/15 - 07/12/15

Just a couple hundred feet from the Atlantic Ocean in Bridgehampton, NY, Uprise Art featured me (alongside the fabulous Kal Mansur and Erin Lynn Welsh) at this summer's "Market Art + Design". Previously known as ArtMarket Hamptons, Market Art + Design featured a newly added design component and is now hosted at the waterfront venue Fairview Farm at Mecox Bridgehampton.
